Full rebuild of WhirlWind, all prerendered for 4K resolution and VR.
warning: some flashing lights sequences may affect photosensitive viewers
Base version VP9 of Herweh used and some bits and pieces from Walamab's Whirlwind for VPX
Flupper: 3d models, 3d inserts, new flipper bats, photoshop work, rendering, lighting, all scripting related to visuals (except VR)
Rothbauerw: all the physics coding and objects
Fleep: sound engineering, sound scripting
Clark Kent: scanned playfield
Blackmoor: owns actual machine, sound recordings, scanned plastics, reference images, reference videos for the lighting, testing
Cosmic80 for cleaning plastics textures for previous vp9 version
Wrd1972: reference photos for ramps placement
Leojreimroc: scoring displays and backglass lighting in VR
Rawd & 3rdaxis: VR room, cabinet, backbox, topper and VR script added
VPW: testing the prerelease beta
For best performance use these settings:
- use 10.6.2 or later
- no brute-force 4x SSAA (is not necessary), but quality SMAA
- exclusive full screen with 1 for FPS limiter and 1 for maximum prerendered frames
- Ambient occlusion, ball trails, screen space reflections all off
Other remarks:
- the magnasave buttons change the LUT, see script options
- it is advised to keep the POV settings as they are in the download for the full screen mode; all textures have been prerendered for this POV
- don't use day/night slider (leave on table default), it does not do much, use LUT to change contrast/brightness
- If you are experiencing thick lines around the inserts in VR, make sure to have the latest VPVR Shaders from November 2021

This is honestly one of the best things I've ever seen/played/heard in VPX.  The bar has been raised.   I can't thank you enough for the work you put into this.

I agree with Rawd. Thank you for sharing this masterpiece with the community and thanks to everyone who helped make it happen. You sir are a master at your craft!

The playfield inserts on this table look incredible, especially in VR. Best I've ever seen! And the physics are delicious. Overall an exquisite table. 

wow  what a fantastic table....great  thank you very much

so sweet

I can't even right now.

Wow...thanks to you all for this marvelous creation.  I've been waiting to play this ever since I heard it was being created.  :-)

Christmas came early!! 

Christmas came a little early this year. Thanks Flupper... can't wait to get this installed.

Stunning work as always, thanks for share, this is a new quality level!

Wow! so much detail and great lighting, and it still runs butter smooth. I was a bit afraid it would stutter since some of the other recent tables have been a bit taxing on my graphics card. Thanks for working what ever magic you do to get this to run so well, and still look so good!
